    Tried this recipe tonight. However didn't follow it completely. Instead of using packaged rice I used jasmine rice. Added vegetable stock, lemon juice and cloves as well, similar to how I make biryani rice. Also, I used coriander instead of green onions, and added chilli flakes for added punch. Tasted great and my family loved it. Thank you
